Re: st: [Stata8] estimates hold?

If you want to save estimation results to disk and recall them later with

intervals, P-values, number of observations and other estimation results,
then use -parmest-, also downloadable from SSC. To install either package
within Stata, use the -ssc- command.
I have a program that takes about 1/2 hour to run. If I want to fiddle
with some post-estimation commands and predictions, is there a way to hold
the estimates even if I have to shut down my computer at night? I don't
want to have to re-run the program just because I have to shut down or
restart the computer.
I thought -estimates hold- might be an option but 1) I didn't know if/how
restore worked after the Stata session ends, and 2) I have a simultaneous
equations model with more than 20 variables (I only need some of the
coefficients in the model for my predictions, however.).
I hope this helps.
